thanks for that fast reply!
I tried changing ess-pdf-viewer-pref by giving the full path to the executable of SumatraPDF,

reasonable new Editor for R and LaTeX).
Including it as one of the options and getting it to work for inverse and forward search would
make a lot of MS Windows users happy. :-)
In case you are interested, here is a How-to for setting it up with AUCTeX:
